Adding Some Comfort To Your Home…
I love a home that has a welcoming feeling to it. And creating cosy corners helps to create that relaxing, calming atmosphere. After a quick poll on my Instagram Stories, someone asked for help on how to create a cosy corner like this one in my home. This is one of my most liked images on my feed, a very humbling feeling. Creating cosy corners in your home is actually easier than it looks. As always, there are a few steps that you can do to create this in your home. Here’s how…
FILL UP THE SPACE.
Large gaps within a corner will make the room feel empty. Our home is an old victorian terrace, which means we have tall rooms. In order to fill up the space, we had to go tall with our shelving unit. Filling up the room also means going out as well as upwards. I like to add and build on furniture, such as placing this chair slightly in front of the open shelving to create depth. However, there’s a fine line between filled and looking cluttered. Try not to overfill it with too much stuff. Making the corner feel unbearable.
ENSURE THERE’S SOMETHING PERSONAL ON SHOW.
Personal objects are a must-have in any home. Especially when you’re creating cosy corners. As always, personal objects allow for people to see your personality, who you are. They add warmth and comfort to a room, exactly the feelings you want to achieve. Personal objects can range from a number of things. Candles in a favourite scent, books on subjects that you love. However, decorative objects can also be items that you’ve picked up on your travels and adventures. Anything that sparks a memory to you or a conversation with visitors.
PLAY WITH TEXTURE.
Texture is another way to create comfort and a cosy corner. Therefore, it’s important to add different types to your cosy corner. As I love neutrals in my home, my corner is filled with natural textures. Therefore, cotton, linens, faux sheep’s wool. All add up to creating definition and texture in your home. Within a room, I would stick with up to three different types. Any more and the room would look cluttered. Find out which textures work with your interior style and go from there. Layer them up in your corner, placing them over furniture, even getting furniture made out of it (like my little stool). Texture goes a long way when it comes to creating comfort and cosiness.
